The Visionary Art of L. Caruana

LA VERSION FRANCAISE





       "The visual language is a lost language, like cyphers undecyphered. But it underlies all that we dream each night. It invisibly appears whenever the images of vision flow in a meaningful way. It emerges from trance, contemplation, myth and madness. This ancient image-language, otherwise forgotten, is now being spoken once more..."

"THE MASTERS OF VISIONARY ART
AT SEDAN"

Translation of excerpt:

"For his part, the Canadian of Maltese origin,
Laurence Caruana delves into Hindu,
Aztec, Buddhist and Byzantine mythologies.
Working in the methods of the Dutch masters,
Caruana is certainly one of the most daring explorers
of ancient mythologies. We are also indebted to him
for the Manifesto of Visionary Art,
a classic work in the field."

"VISIONARY ART:
HEIR OF THE HIERATIC TRADITION"

My visual presentation on Visionary Art
was filmed by Baglis.tv
and is now available on line
(In French only, through pay per view).

"In this 51 minute presentation, Laurence Caruana
analyzes the 'hieratic' qualities of sacred art.
Through the examples of Hinduism, Buddhism,
Egypt, Maya and Aztec, he exposes the lost and
hidden style underlying all these traditions.
Turning to Occidental art,
he traces the loss of the hieratic style
in this tradition due to the emergence
of the 'humanist' style.
Finally, he shows how Visionary Art
which is both modern and traditional,
incorporates both both humanist
and hieratic styles."
